This is news about a short film commission in North Devon, it’s been politely sitting in the corner of our inbox for a bit, so we could have been more urgent in getting it out.

Farmers, film makers and local communities are being invited to show their support for a landmark creative heritage project in North Devon.
New North Devon film commission
Local community film making organisation North Devon Moving Image CIC (NDMI) is making plans to launch an exciting new film commission which will create a series of short documentary films about farmers and farming in northern Devon.
Creative director of NDMI, Amanda McCormack says ‘Down on the Farm will be a unique chance for the farming community to share their stories with the wider world.

Amanda adds: ‘Part of our remit at NDMI is to support filmmakers, both in North Devon and the wider creative community throughout the UK.
